Faux Bois Tray

Steps:6
Faux bois means "false wood" in French; it is a simple technique that you can use to decorate wrapping paper, dressers, and walls elegantly. Here, it turns a plain wooden serving tray into one that is beautiful and special -- and perfect for a gift.
Materials
  • Mineral spirits
  • 2 shades of paint (one coat for "wood grain" and the other for the background color)
  • Paint brush
  • Wood-grain tool
  • Rag
  • Wood tray
  • Glass (same size as bottom of tray; Martha used a 3/16-inch-thick glass plate)
